Thank God it’s Friday’s song of the day

When I started doing music posts on Fridays I decided I wouldn’t force myself to always attempt to introduce you, my dear readers, to the latest thing. There are plenty of other sites that do a much better job of that than this one.

With that in mind, today’s song is both new and not new at the same time.

Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip, the “British electro-rap duo” (to quote Pitchfork), have announced that their first album, entitled Angles, will be released on May 12th in the U.S.

The album will include an updated version of the awesome “Letter From God to Man.” I think Le Sac’s work on the new version is great—more intricate and intense. Mister Pip’s performance is good, though I like some of the elements of his delivery on the original better. Whatever, it’s still great. And it's both new and not new because it's a new version of a song that came out last year.

Here’s “Letter From God to Man” by Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip:

And you can check out the video for the equally great “Thou Shalt Always Kill” here.

Saw them last night and I agree. A bit hit or miss but 25 min of them was just right. Just walked away from the dcfc set and was very pleased. 3 of their new songs are hot like underage sex.
